Shorty's Restaurant Review

: This tiny, somewhat hard-to-find neighborhood gem offers thin-crusted and wood-fired pizza. The pies have crazy names, and some don't make much sense. "Elvis," for instance, is a margherita with anchovies. It's good, but our favorite layers sopressata, prosciutto, roasted garlic and onions, with a last-minute scattering of arugula over the top. There are a number of white pizzas, too, and many are vegetarian and one is vegan. We also like the spaghetti squash salad mounded on crisp, peppery arugula. Non-pizza mains include value-priced cedar-planked salmon and a six-ounce blackened steak. Among desserts is an apple “pizza” dusted with cinnamon, but try the Key lime pie, baked over graham cracker crust in a round ceramic ramekin. The brief wine list is most serviceable, although you may prefer to hit the considerable brews inventory for a pizza companion. Decatur brewery Three Taverns is represented on draught. Also located at 3701 Lawrenceville Hwy., Tucker, 770-414-6999.
